Oleander lullaby

Journeys on a crimson sky

In azure dreams I see her face

She’s anything but commonplace

Every night she dances there

Waltzing on my paper stairs

Nutmeg whispers in the leaves

Earth stands still as she breathes

The dust of my quiet dreams

Zinnia-scented paper screams

Eland stroll around my bed

Lulling me into her head

Firstly, I love your title, very dreamy ;) and the rhythm and your word choices are swaying, in my opinion. 'anything but commonplace' - ayee, that is how it is!
I read this piece several times, and each time felt this certain kind of comfort so thank you for that. Lovely write, Craig.

Hmmm if only they’d hurry and come true...🌹
The opening lines are such a hook to the reader into a romantic piece of rhyming poetry with such a passionate embrace of quite superb descriptive phrases.

There's nothing like a beautifully lit "dusty dream",
and this poems does just that, lights it up ...
